"As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously?
Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?
I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.
But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened?Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?" -Aman Ali (via lanadelmonteraisins)
I had a little note pad, in which I wrote, “Can’t speak, Ursula the Sea Witch stole my voice! But I’m happy to assist you!”And a little girl came up to me, read my notepad, grabbed my hand, and dragged me all around the store,asking random guys if they’d like to be my “true love” so I can get my voice back and stay human.…it was the most adorable, awkward situation I had ever been in. Everyone else got a kick out of my reference too.
Too cute not to reblog. XD
I had an old friend from high school put on Facebook that she needed someone willing to take a few photos to help her build her portfolio. I jumped at the opportunity, and these were just a few of the results.
These are just 9 of my fave shots but there were plenty of fabulous photos to choose from. I haven’t felt this pretty/sexy in a long time, but this was a great reminder that I am beautiful and radiant from the inside out.
